Kivori Learning Centre in Papua New Guinea, established and run by independent ministry Operation Food For Life (OFFL), recently received a donation of uniforms from Hope Adventist School in Bundaberg (Qld).

Previously named Coral Coast Christian School the Bundaberg school changed its name in 2020, creating the need for new uniforms that harmonised with the new name.

“We were so blessed to be given new and as new preloved Coral Coast Christian School uniforms,” said OFFL president Dennis Perry.

“Families who live in the school village could not afford a school uniform, so imagine how excited the children were when they put the new uniforms on,” he added.

Located three hours west of Port Moresby and accessible only by helicopter or four-wheel drive, the learning centre was established by OFFL in Kivori in 2017 with 120 students. Today, the school provides free education for more than 300 students, all from impoverished communities.

“We wish to thank Hope Adventist School principal, chaplain, teachers, students, parents, and all involved in this amazing donation,” said Mr Perry.
